OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an elderly man was beaten after he refused another man permission to marry his girlfriend.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office reports that deputies arrested 40-year-old James Kane Monday on a charge of felony domestic battery on a person over 65.

Kane told deputies he became angry after the 72-year-old victim refused his marriage request.

The Ocala Star-Banner (https://bit.ly/1wyew4J) reports that the victim, whom was not named by authorities, had cuts on his face, which was also bruised.

The victim reportedly told deputies that Kane has bipolar disorder and had not taken his medications.
